Windows Update not working

Fresh install of Windows 7 and i have tried the readiness update which comes back with no errors in the log. I have removed firewall and antivirus and still cannot get the Microsoft Updates (it is just the security related ones) to install. I have also run the sfc /scannow from the elevated cmd prompt which also came back clean. Any help would be appreciated...

Hi, i've been unable to do a windows update, it simply doesn't start and gives me an error message. When I tried SFC/SCANNOW in the command prompt, the scan completed and I got: Windows Resource Protection found corrupt files, but was unable to fix some of them. So that's about where I got to.
